“Astronomers who are at universities will be doing teaching, both of undergrad and graduate students, and supervising graduate students in their Master’s and PhD theses,” said Christine Wilson, a professor of physics and astronomy at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ont., and president of the Canadian Astronomical Society. “Astronomers at the National Research Council have some component of their duties which are typically involved in helping to support and maintain the international telescopes that Canada is involved in.”
Salary: According to Prof. Wilson, astronomers conducting postdoctoral research typically earn between $40,000 and $70,000 a year.
“The $40,000-a-year level would be the ones who are typically working on a project that a professor has gotten funding for,” she said. “The $70,000 is the highest-level prize fellowship in Canada.”
